Great April Fool's Day #FridayFlash Blog Swap - index of stories

... and here it is, for reals! The Great April Fool's Day FridayFlash Blog Swap index of stories!

Below you will find the index of all the FridayFlash authors(1) who are swapping blogs for the day. This is like cross-dressing, except that, when you get your clothes back, the elastic isn't all stretched out and nobody got makeup on your tie.

Each of the authors below worked out the details with their swap partner directly. In some cases this was easy and painless, while in other cases people now hate me. For everyone in the non-hating category, I hope you had fun! I asked the authors to post the following template text with their stories, to help people navigate through all of this.

April Fools! The story you just read appears here on my blog as a part of the Great April Fool's Day FridayFlash Blog Swap, organized by Tony Noland. You can find my story for today at SWAP PARTNER's website, To read all the dozens of stories swapping around as a part of the GAFDFFBS, check out the GAFDFFBS index over at Tony's blog Landless. For hundreds of thousands of words of fantastic flash fiction stories, check out the FridayFlash hashtag on Twitter. It happens every Friday!
(1): Not all of them, actually. I'm saving two author's stories for a special Earth Day edition of the Blog Swap.

Read and enjoy!
